2. A Black Belt In Business

Black Metal Business Card Custom Cutouts

When you’re a true martial arts master, you need a tough set of cards that are nothing to mess with! With our mission at hand, we were ready to design these cutting edge Black Metal Cards for Lou Casamassa’s Red Dragon Karate.

An ever-popular choice, our matte black metal finish perfectly tows the line of tough, sleek, and professional. Leaving spot color by the wayside, these cards were created using only various etching techniques for an impressive display of texture. Using chemical etching at different exposure rates we cut a custom chain link design into the cards at different depths to create both cut through and surface etched variances. Using our silver laser etching we removed the top layer of finish to reveal the raw stainless steel underneath to expose their beautifully intricate logo. 

The cool tones and structured cutouts in this card truly put the art in martial arts!

3. Get CUT, With Custom Cutouts

Stainless Steel Metal Business Card Custom Cutouts

Steve Olson owner of Archetype Strength gym’s mission is to provide a high quality and badass gym to train at, and commissioned us to design cards to match! Our Stainless Steel cards deliver that hard hitting, industrial feel, ideal to represent pumping iron.

A neon green spot color bounces off the finish and gives an edge to key elements of the card. We cut through a custom shattered triangle pattern to complement the triangle in the logo and add a sturdy design element.

We are ready to sign up and break a sweat with cards as hardcore as these!

4. Total Knock Out

Black Metal Square Business Card

For Larry Jones of Bare Knuckle Fighting the rugged nature of the sport required a custom Square metal business card worthy of standing up to its name. Our popular Black Metal finish is the perfect canvas for those looking to deliver a message both tough and professional.

Although slightly smaller in size, the uniquely square shape of these cards sets them apart from a typical rectangle and earns them a double take. Reminiscent of the fighting ring, a custom chain link fence cutout pattern is used for detailing across the top of the card. Keeping it bold yet striking, a stark white spot color is used for the content, creating the most contrast for an achromatic look.

Typical paper business cards don’t stand a fighting chance against this knockout design!

5. Gripping Design

Business Cards with QR Codes

1. Construct Conversation

White Metal Business Card With Qr Code

For the Mullis Construction Group cards they decided a White Metal Business Card enhanced with a QR code would be the ideal jumping off point for a card that covers all of the bases.

Maximizing functionality, we used a black spot color to apply the traditional business information, the QR code, AND a ruler to the cards! The addition of an extra spot color in their signature yellow unifies their branding. We created a custom chain link fence cutout pattern with rounded corners to border the card and match the construction elements of their business.   

From minimalist to maximalist a QR code serves every style!

2. Cutting Edge

Gunmetal Business Card With Qr Code

J.C. Platt Builders wanted a sleek, custom card with extra accessibility!

Our Gunmetal Business Cards have the perfect professional yet cutting edge look, merging the corporate and rugged elements of a construction business. Using a surface etching technique to apply the imagery and logos provides a monochromatic feel and allows for extra detail without distraction. Using a silver laser etching technique to apply the QR code lets the raw stainless steel show through, creating an almost highlight effect. The contrast allows the code to be scanned easier, while also drawing attention.

An understated color palette with contrasting POP will keep focus right where you need it!

3. Pointing to Success

Stainless Steel Business Card Qr Code

As one of our best sellers, our Stainless Steel Business Cards are the perfect way to show off the truly unique look and feel of a metal card. The raw Stainless Steel brings forth the unique quality of holding a metal card in your hands.

With chemical etching, we applied a custom shape mesh pattern to contour the bold arrow shaped logo. The large logo and black screen printed QR codes balance out the card and make a statement. With no other readable information on this side of the card, the recipient can scan the QR code to be taken directly to the company website.

4. Triangulate Success

Black Metal Business Card With Qr Code

Opting for our sought-after Black Metal Cards, Unique McKinney was looking to impress their clients with cards both intriguing and modern. Seeking to draw an audience and create interest in the city of McKinney, TX, a QR code is the perfect portal of information. Created to link directly to their website, the QR code allows all the information to be accessible by a quick scan, and leaves room on the card for a cleaner and more aesthetic design. 

To create a unique black on black background pattern, we combined our matte black cards with a black semi-gloss spot color for contrasting finishes that reveal in different lighting. Our silver laser etching creates a crisp QR code and URL for high legibility, with an accent of spot color to match their signature Unique blue.

Open doorways to success with your own QR code!

2. Command Attention

My Metal Business Card | Black Metal Real Estate Luxury Business Card Lux Surface Etching And Silver

A great way to add interest to a card without the use of multiple colors is through texture. Wanting to stick to a sleek and more neutral color palette, Comandini Real Estate Advisory chose our popular Matte Black Metal Business Cards with various etching options.

Using our surface etching technique, we etched a custom Comandini logo pattern into the background of the card prior to coating it in our Black Finish. This creates a slight debossed effect adding a textural experience and slight visual interest without skewing the focal point of the logo. We also used our silver laser etching to reveal the raw Stainless Steel underneath, and to apply the decorative border and company information.

3. The Right ONE

My Metal Business Card | Stainless Steel Luxury Raltor Business Card With Gold Spot Colot Black Details

Opting for our popular Stainless Steel Business Cards, Mike Vaupel of Realty ONE Group chose to showcase the natural finish of a true metal card. Although our various finishes are impressive, a pure Stainless Steel helps to highlight the special quality of holding a metal card in your hands.

Custom cut through areas are a huge design advantage to metal cards, and add an impressive flair to any piece. Using our chemical etching process, we cut through a sweeping mesh pattern along with custom cutouts inside the logo. A traditional black spot color was used for the contact information, and a gold spot color for the logo to draw attention!

A neutral black spot color is used to bring attention to the company title, keeping the design balanced. For an extra special touch, we used a custom mesh cut through pattern towards the edge of the card.
